I have read that currently Cisco VPN Client does not support Vista 64bit OS, and that AnyConnect does. I have a WinXP laptop which I have Cisco VPN Client installed with MANY (about 50) *.pcf profiles installed. I loaded AnyConnect on my new Vista 64bit desktop, and expected to load the same *.pcf profiles. But apparently AnyConnect uses XML profiles which I do not fully understand. Is there a simple solution to configuring my AnyConnect using these pcf profiles, which comprise host address, group authentication, and username/pwd? Or, is there a solution so I can use Cisco VPN Client on my Vista 64bit desktop?
